EATING DISORDER RECOVERY
‘Conquer’; Transformational Eating Disorder Programme
How is it different to other eating disorder help?
I believe that actually eating disorders aren’t really about food. On a surface level they might be, but underneath the restricting, the calorie counting, the exercising and all the other behaviours that you do, there is usually a much bigger issue – an unconscious programme running which is driving your ED thoughts, feelings and behaviours, making you feel worthless, not good enough and lacking confidence.
Conquer in 6 simple but powerful steps
Eating Disorder Treatment Sydney
1. Ready for change
The first thing I need from you is the ‘want’ for things to be different. You don’t need to know what different means, but that you are fed up where you are and can’t go on like this anymore. All I ask is for you to make a 100% commitment to yourself, your transformation and me. If you give me 100% I will give you 150%.
2. Honesty about how your ED is impacting you and your life
In our first session we will deep dive into your eating disorder and how it is impacting you, others around you and your life. This will begin to build a clear picture of where you are and we can then set some goals on what you want from us working together.
3. Education and Understanding of your brain
I believe that before any deep work can begin you need to have a clear understanding of your brain, the science of how it works and what is going on at the peaks of your ED behaviour. This forms the basis of my ‘you are not broken’ approach- there is something going on in your brain, in terms of the neurological connections which is keeping you stuck. You will be educated and begin to relate this new information to yourself, your thoughts, feelings and ED behaviours.
4. Reprogramming your unconscious ED behaviours
With the understanding of your brain you will begin to realise that your Eating Disorder is simply a process which has been stored unconsciously. The deep work will begin when we look to understand what is driving your eating disorder behaviour and focus on rewiring these unhelpful connections in your brain. You might not consciously know what they are, and that’s ok – we’ll explore it together in a way that feels safe and comfortable for you.
5. Rebuild your confidence and self-esteem
Once we’ve worked on resolving and reprogramming the underlying issues, we’ll work on helping you to build your feelings of self confidence, self-esteem and self worth, until we get to the next stage, which is where you’ll begin to feel ready to start making changes of your choice at a level and rate that you are ok with.
6. Recovery for the whole family
Eating Disorders impact the whole family, who also need to be involved in the recovery process. This is important that you all are receiving the same education, understanding of the brain and how to support each other throughout the process. A united front where everyone is on the same page and involved in what they need to do to keep making progress. I offerfree telephone, Skype and 1:1 support to parents/partners of any clients I see (keeping in mind that all client’s details and case notes are kept strictly confidential.)
Eating disorders are complicated, and everyone experiences them in a different way – there is no ‘one size fits all’ process that works. All the work I do with you will be individually tailored to your specific needs, circumstances and goals.
WHAT WOULD BE INCLUDED WITHIN YOUR CONQUER EATING DISORDER TREATMENT PROGRAMME
1. Complementary appointment to get to know each other
If you are anything like I was, I saw many different therapists, often just for 1 session as I felt that they ‘didn’t get me’. This is why I offer a complementary 30 minute appointment in person or on Skype so we can get to know each other and from there we can make a decision whether we are the right match for each other. The ‘1 session then change' approach just slows down recovery and I want to make sure this does not happen for you.
2. 90 minute first session
This is where we delve a little deeper into you, your eating disorder and everything it is affecting in your life. I treat food as a symptom of something else going on for you and this session will look to explore where all of this came from and is the basis of how I build and what I include within your recovery programme.
3. Weekly outcome-based follow ups
Subsequent sessions will be weekly, either in person or on Skype. This ensures enough continuity and builds momentum when you begin to see changes. All follow ups are outcome-based rather than time-based so we will continue until whatever we are working on that week is resolved and you can leave feeling empowered, not cut off because of timings.
4. Weekly accountability tasks to complete
I am also here as your accountability buddy and part of this I will be asking you to complete a set of tasks each week between sessions. The purpose of these tasks is to continue to build on the great work we do in our sessions and to ensure we continue to progress over the next 7 days. These tasks can be anything from journalling, gratitude, self-love and kindness to working on diet, exercise or any physical symptoms.
5. Personalised between-session support programme
The thing that really got me about seeing a therapist was the fact that I could leave the session quite happily but 2 days after, something may happen or I would get triggered back into my old behaviours and relapse. I felt un-supported and helpless knowing I had to wait another 5 days until I could see my therapist.
The fact is 60% of changes happen outside sessions! This is why you will also be given your own personalised between-session support programme which includes:
Round the clock support from me via email, Whats app, Facebook or text. I often receive simple messages such as;“ help I’m feeling really anxious today and I don’t know what to do”. I am here for you to help you manage any unwanted thoughts or feeling BEFORE they trigger your ED behaviours.
You will be given tasks, tools and strategies to use daily to help keep you on track.
Mid session check in via phone or Skype. If you feel like you need a check-in from your accountability buddy mid-week we can jump on the phone and talk through the last few days and set you up for success over the next few days until you see me.
I will write you your own unique hypnosis recording for you to listen to before you go to sleep or as a calming tool for whenever you feel stressed, anxious or overwhelmed. This again builds on the shifts which happen in our sessions and primes your unconscious for the deep-rooted changes which will help overcome the root cause of your eating disorder.
6. Diet and Gastro-intestional symptom management & advice
It is well known that during recovery GI symptoms can develop and this can really slow down your progress. General diet advice may not be helpful when you are suffering with GI symptoms. I have a diagnosed digestive condition which impacted my recovery which ended up being long, tiring and painful. I will help you to manage any symptoms you are suffering with and offer diet and supplement advice to ensure that you stay on track.
7. Complementary monthly sessions for struggling parents/family members
Eating Disorders do not just impact the individual. There can also be huge emotional impact on their families and people close to them. My ED nearly destroyed my family relationship as nobody knew how to best cope and help each other. This created tension and fear at home, rather than a safe place to recover. Just another factor which can impact the length of recovery.
Your mum, dad, brother, aunt, best friend will be offered a free session per month to support them through recovery.
8. Access to motivational tools & advice for FREE
You will be sent weekly tools, tips and strategies to keep you motivated and on track.
